The village pump used to be a feature of every village near here. Many have been preserved but I don't know of any that still works.
Didn't you try? :)
Wow! Looks like you could fight a fire with that one. :-)
I haven't seen one of these hand pumps in a long time. They can give your arm a good workout.
I would think so. i have worked many of those handles in my day.
I wonder too. My grandparents had a similar one!
OH, WHAT A CHARMING PHOTO, BILL. WE HAD ONE OF THESE AT A FORMER HOUSE.HAVE A GREAT DAY.
Hello, neat find. I have seen them as decorations. Have a happy day and a great new week ahead.
I hope this pump still works. In case of an emergency without water supply, this helps people to continue daily life.
...they don't make them like this today.
Haven't seen one of them for ages.God bless.
Neat looking pump.We have a red one but it is just decoration.Haven't found a place to put it yet at Happy Trails but we will.
I pumped a lot of water with those pumps. I'll never for get the squeak squeak of the pump.
I have some vague memories of someone in my family using one like that when I was a kid.
Would be tempting to have a little try Bill 😉
I imagine it's just decorative.
That's a fancy one!
Probably just for decoration! Nice though, Bill!
There’s only one way to find out Bull 😅
Sorry, I mean Bill.
What a beautiful Pump
I have used one of these many times in my youth, but have not seen a working one in many years.
I like the decoration!
Would love to have one in my yard.
It is a nice looking pump, great picture.All the best Jan
I don't see a lot of wear on it. Unique decoration.
Looks pretty functional, I hope you went up and pumped a bit. Sometimes they do need a priming.
Maybe it does work to water the lawn it is in. Looks lovely!
